Chocolate and Nut Dipped Marshmallows - Last Minute Treat Ideas, or Using Up the Leftovers

Have a few marshmallows left over from all your Christmas baking? You could leave them in the bag to go stale, or turn them into a tasty, last minute treat.


Ingredients:





  • Jumbo Marshmallows

  • Chocolate chips (approximately 1 cup for a dozen marshmallows)

  • Chopped nuts of your choice (about 1/2 cup for a dozen marshmallows)

  • Toothpicks

Prepare a wax paper covered plate.

Push a toothpick into the top of each marshmallow.


Melt the chocolate in the microwave, for about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring at 30 second intervals.


Dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate, and then roll them in the nuts.


Place the wax paper covered plate, in the refrigerator, until the chocolate hardens.


Enjoy!

It's great to be a homeschooler.

in place of nuts, use crushed graham crackers and you have s'mores on a stick. :)
